What would you do if someone actually answered honestly – the jeans make you look fat! And now you cant use my dating site anymore…
The story – link
As if January didn’t already feel like one long arduous Monday, imagine dealing with a wallop to your ego in addition to all those Christmas credit cards bills and below zero temps. About 5,000 members of the dating and social networking site BeautifulPeople.com felt the self-esteem sucker punch after getting axed for indulging in a few too many gingerbread men and Ho Ho Ho-tinis. The dating site, which describes itself as an “exclusively beautiful community,” ousted the users for gaining weight over the holidays in what appears to be an attempt at some publicity.
Complaints from other members sparked the superficial site’s decision to purge members who packed on the holiday pounds. Membership to the site requires a voting process where current members judge applicants’ attractiveness and the site relies on community policing to ensure Grade A quality hotness.
Site founder (and superficial jerk) Robert Hitnze defended the action, commenting, “As a business, we mourn the loss of any member, but the fact remains that our members demand the high standard of beauty be upheld. Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded.” Deep.
